The Patient Innovation (PI) Bootcamp is an acceleration program aimed at supporting patients, informal caregivers and collaborators to implement and scale up the innovative solutions they developed to help them cope with a need imposed by their health condition.
The PI Bootcamp is delivered in a blended way, with 2 weeks on-site (in Lisbon and Copenhagen) as well as online sessions. The entire process is supported by e-leaning materials designed to help teams of patients and informal caregivers to further develop and launch their device, diagnostic tools or digital health innovations.
What does it consist of?
The Patient Innovation Bootcamp will help teams learn about and develop:
Medical, regulatory and technological aspects
Lisbon, Portugal 🇵🇹
Barcelona, Spain 🇪🇸

In the end, the teams will be able to validate their clinical, technological and business concept. The teams will benefit from specialized mentoring.
All selected teams will have travel and accommodation expenses covered.
